‘Black and White with Bunnies All Over’ Easter Tablescape
Easter is less than two weeks away and in anticipation, I’m hopping down the bunny trail for an Easter Tablescape Blog Hop! You’ll find Easter table inspiration from 25 table stylists this week at the bottom of this post.
I took a departure from previous years’ Easter tablescapes and a pastel palette in favor of a table that’s different for me . . . one that’s ‘black and white with bunnies all over’!
The table inspiration came from a set of black and white polka dot bunny and chick salad plates purchased on clearance from MacKenzie-Childs a couple of years ago.
They’re served up on black and white striped plates and a black and white tablecloth with bunnies, that hopped in my cart at HomeGoods.
Chicks are hatching. . .
And bunnies are blooming at the table in anticipation of Easter.
To arrange the flowers and support the stems in the bunny baskets, I used a favorite flower arranging tool and method, chicken wire, as the wire is reusable.
Baskets are filled with fragrant hyacinths, speckled eggs and stems of Charmelia, known for its long-lasting vase life.
Pots of muscari, commonly known as grape hyacinths, are blooming in a tureen. . .
I recycled mini pots of the hyacinths from my Spring Bulbs and Blooms.
To make the centerpiece, I lined the tureen with plastic bags and removed the hyacinths from their plastic pots.
Green Spanish moss provides a decorative layer and filler to conceal the soil and to nestle and ‘hide’ black and white capiz eggs. Lindt mini milk chocolate chicks and bunnies provide an edible treat tucked in among the hyacinths blooms.
Our Easter celebration usually takes place at my sister-in-law’s house with extended family celebrating and eating together. We’ll be enjoying a quiet celebration at home this year to self-isolate with a mandated stay at home order through April 29th to help flatten the curve. All the more reason to do something that brings you joy, like set a pretty table, even there are only two of you dining at home!

Your table ranks first in all of the given tablescapes. Thank you
Everything is so cute!
Mary, Your black and white table with bunnies all over is delightful! I would never think to use black and white for Easter but it is so striking, especially with your colorful flowers in your bunny baskets. Keep the cheerful posts and tables coming! .🐰🐣🌷💕 Katie
Good morning Mary! I love that you did something a little different and it is perfect. The toile tablecloth is a lovely foundation for your black and white table. The MKC salad plates are adorable, have you used them before? I am admiring the florals, so pretty. I miss being able to purchase pretty blooms. It will definitely be a different Easter this year as we all will miss our normal celebrations. Have a joy filled day♥️
One of the things I love most about your table posts, Mary, is how you surprise with your creativity. This is very sharp in black and white. That tablecloth was just waiting for you and those plates, love them all together! The muscari centerpiece can’t be beat, that’s perfect with the eggs hidden within. The Bunny Williams rings and placemats are exceptionally nice. And I couldn’t agree more about setting a pretty table, especially now. I’m so happy you’re a part of this blog hop. Stay well!
I absolutely love your black and white Easter tablescape. I adore black and white and was going to decorate my Easter table in black and white this year as well. Unfortunately, due to COVID -19 we will be unable to entertain family this year. Thank you for sharing – I look forward to your daily inspiration!
The black and white is quite lovely and unexpected. Classic elegance and whimsy!💕
Love it all! I especially love those adorable check plates and that beautiful tablecloth! Pinning for next year when we’ll be entertaining and hosting family again. Thank you Mary!
Mary, You outdid yourself this morning! Love, love, love the Black and White! So clean and crisp.
Thanks for all your beautiful ideas……..
Happy last day of March!
Your photography skills are the best. Of all the blogs I follow, I get the best perspective from yours because your pictures are so well done. Your close ups and angles allow the viewer to experience your subject matter first hand. Thank you.
You are so creative, Mary! I am amazed constantly by how you can plan different and stunning tables for our enjoyment. The black and white floral cloth makes a lovely background for your white rabbits with colorful flowers and dramatic whimsical plates. I love your muscari centerpiece with the capiz eggs and decorative foil-wrapped Easter candy. Yes, our Easter celebrations will look different this year. It is nice to have a pretty table already done.
Have a blessed Easter.
I love your table! That tablecloth is the perfect “hopping off” Spot for the black and white bunny plates. And all the white bunnies with flowers look so pretty. Happy Easter
You have really changed it up here, showing that your creative mind can make all things beautiful!! Your table is exquisitely styled with the black and white for a fabulous twist on a typically colorful holiday. I love that tureen with the eggs hidden so sweetly amongst the grape hyacinths. Stay safe and have a nice Easter. Thanks for hopping with us🐇🌸
Oh, Mary, it is always a delight to stop by! I actually had to get up from my desk and go check my linen closet…I bought the same tablecloth and napkins this year, and didn’t even realize there were bunnies on them! I guess I may be saving them for the future! I also have those same dinner plates! I guess great minds think alike. Now, those MacKenzie Childs egg-shaped dishes are fabulous! You inspire me to do a better job of styling! Happy Easter, please stay well and stay safe.
I love your color combinations, Mary! Your sweet floral centerpieces really pop against the lovely patterned tablecloth. The whole table is lovely! Pinned! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction
I love your black and white table. It’s so different. I especially love the tablecloth. It looks like toille, such a classic. Happy to discover your web site.
Always one of my favorite tables to visit is yours. How very cool that you have made such a gorgeous black and white Easter table. Those egg plates are such a nice find! I love the toile tablecloth the most. All of your pieces blend so well together to create the look. Flowers always make the perfect centerpiece and I love that you hid treats in yours. Happy Easter season!
Very lovely!! Got all Easter decor out but no one will be here for Easter this year!! SAD BUT SAFE!! Take care! ♥️🐇
Mary, Your tablecloth is gorgeous! Love it! The black and white Easter table is so pretty and your dishes, especially the egg shaped ones are perfect. Your tureen arrangement with the foil wrapped candy and capiz eggs just completes a wonderful Easter table! The larger bunny floral arrangements really add a pop of color! I’m missing visiting HomeGoods and there’s no cure for that! ;) This wonderful tablescape has eased yearning!☺️ Take care and stay safe! Clara ♥️
Im loving your black and white theme for Easter, Mary. The table set on the bunny toile tablecloth with the beautiful pops of colors from the flowers makes your table so vibrant. Thank you for taking the time to share the Easter beauty, Mary!
Wow’ I would have never thought of using black and white for Easter, but it works beautiful with the white bunnies. All the beautiful colors in your flowers in your centerpiece play off the black and white dishes. Love that tablecloth too. Have a safe Easter. I think our celebrations this year will be small, but our hearts will be full.
Hope you are well!
Thank you Kathleen, you too. I still miss your St. Paddy’s Day crawl! ☘️💚
I am a huge fan of black and white and it is perfect for any occasion! Love the unique Easter egg plates paired with the pretty striped dinner plates with the sweet bunny tablecloth and napkins ❤️ The blooming tureen with eggs and chocolate treats is just too cute! Of course your white ceramic bunny is darling with his blooms and eggs. Yes, Easter will be different this year, but this time of isolation is a wonderful chance to enjoy the little things and be grateful. I know you will get plenty of love from your adorable fur bunnies! 🐾🐾
So very refreshing and crisp. Don’t always think of black and white at Easter. You must have had this stuff for awhile or ordered online. This shelter in place business is not a problem for me except I miss HOMEGOODS!
Love your B & W theme!! my dining room table is now my office so not sure where i will be dining for Easter but i hope you have a Happy one :) Stay well
Love the bunny tablecloth that hopped into your cart! Gave me a good laugh! I would never think black and white for Easter but it really looks very festive and just beautiful!
That tablecloth is beautiful and it allows all the vibrant colors from your accessories stand out. Those flowers are gorgeous! Easter will definitely be different this year but being healthy has to be top priority. Stay well!
Oh Mary this is such a delightful tablescape! Love the black and white theme. The linens are wonderful and so are those bunny plates! I really like the black and white striped dishes too. The florals are wonderful. I love that you show how you create them! Great blog hopping with you!
Oh, I love the black and white! What a fun color combination to add other colors to! Thanks so much for sharing your ideas with us all today.
Sophisticated nod to Spring. Love it
Well, Mary, you’ve somehow managed to create a whimsical and elegant table at the same time. I love the black and white you used. It’s so fresh. I’m so excited to be on this blog hop with you.
Hi Mary, What a lovely twist on an Easter table….both classic and whimsy. I certainly enjoy the different use of colors than the pastels at Easter. The bold black and white is a a great statement, especially when it is paired up with the lovely lavender colors in your floral. I am very fond of McKenzie Childs line and they work so beautifully with your tablescape. I always enjoy your work and always enjoy blog hopping with you. Stay safe, healthy and have a cozy Easter.
The tablecloth, napkins and rings are gorgeous together. Flower arrangements so pretty.
Mary, I absolutely love the black and white elements of your fabulous Easter tablescape — and oh, how I lust for that tablecloth! So many wonderful details that make it such a special setting. I especially like your pairing the white rattan chargers with the MC dishes, and the napkins with the vintage-looking silver rings. Hopefully by Easter we can celebrate seeing an end to this ordeal. Wishing you a healthy April and happy Easter holiday.
Mary, such a delightful table with black and white. I have those egg shaped MK plates too. Loving the dinner plates, I might have missed out on those. The pots of muscari is lovely. Loving the tureen all decked out and added capiz eggs. The toile tablecloth is so perfect with the dishes. You never disappoint. I admire your creativity. always a pleasure mary joining you on these fun hops.
Mary your Black and White Easter tablescape is very nice. The tablecloth is special. Love the bunnies and the chicks.

Hi !! I absolutely love the black & white , perfect for my kitchen !! This year I finally got to decorate for Easter like I use to, I am enjoying this time off and staying home !! But of course we had to cancel our trip to the Biltmore, that will just make the time we can go extra special!!
You and your family stay well !!
Your table is so beautiful! I love the black and white table cloth! I’m keeping my eyes open for something similar! I love the plates and the beautiful hyacinth centerpiece! All so lovely and inspiring!
I have the same tablecloth and I love it! Thank you for sharing your beautiful tablescape.

Black and white is so elegant, and I am swooning over the black toile tablecloth. Ever element is perfect and creates such a gorgeous setting! I have so enjoyed my visit! Take care!
I’m swooning along with Shannon over that toile bunny tablecloth! Those white wicker placemats also caught my eye…I don’t think I’ve ever seen any like them before. Grape hyacinths are one of my favorite Spring flowers, and I love how you arranged them in the ironstone tureen with the chocolate chicks and bunnies. Another beautiful table, Mary. Happy Easter!
Mary, I love your beautiful black and white Easter table! The tablecloth is a lovely backdrop for this holiday table. The egg shaped MacKenzie Child plates are gorgeous!
